Reunion 2012
June 1, 2 & 3

General Information

Campus Services
Campus Store, Plourde Recreation Center, and the pool will be open at various times throughout the weekend.

Class Directory

A Reunion Directory will be produced for the Classes of 1962 and 1987 and mailed in March so you can reconnect with classmates. PLEASE MAKE SURE that you return the Alumni Data Verification form so that all contact information is correct. Thank you!

Class Gift

When a class celebrates a reunion, classmates are encouraged to participate in the Reunion Class Gift (a gift to the Annual Fund or another College priority).  Reunion classes strive for 40-50% class participation - some come in even higher!  Current donors are encouraged to consider increasing their annual gift.  Alumni who are not annual donors are asked to participate with a gift of any size to increase the participation level.  The goal is to present the College with a Reunion Class Gift that reflects the enthusiasm of the class and their affection for Assumption College. 

Remember, there can be tax advantages to making donations of appreciated securities, and corporate matching gifts count toward your class gift.  This can be an easy way to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift.

Every gift - no matter what size - counts towards class participation!  Reunion gifts may be made on-line by visiting

Overnight Accommodations

Reunioners will be housed in the Living/Learning Center.  LLC is an air-conditioned suite-style, private-bath accommodation.  (Class of 2007 residence hall TBD)
